Only 3 days after #SethRich was killed, Russian intelligence created a fake memo putting Rich at the center of the #DNC email hack.
It didn't take long for the conspiracy to spread.
@FoxNews made it their central focus, as did some Trump operatives.

In 2017, Donna Brazile, who had worked on Hillary Clinton's campaign, said she had "feared for her life" after the #SethRich murder. The right took those words and ran with them as more evidence HRC had Rich killed. (Brazile is now at Fox News.)

The claim from both the right and the alt left was that Hillary Clinton had Seth Rich killed because he had blown the whistle on her rigging the election.

Back in 2017, some of us knew that was lunacy.

I have written about the perilous reach of #JohnKelly since Jan 2017.
He has repeatedly been given a pass despite being a virulent racist and misogynist who also authored #ZeroTolerance and the Muslim and trans bans.

This is unconstitutional and illegal.
If you somehow missed #JohnKelly's rich history of awfulness which dates back to his days at #Guantanamo,here are some reminders of who he really is.

He's the architect of Trump's #WhiteSupremacist war on brown people, particularly at the Southern Border.

But before #JohnKelly hated brown people, he thought hating black people made a lot of sense. Never forget that he lied about a black war widow and a sitting black congresswoman and refused to apologize when he was called out for it.

Lawrence: "Forgive me if I mispronounce her name, but I've never had any reason to say it publicly or privately."

I guess we are supposed to all high five this line, right?

It's nice that white liberal America has a black woman they can comfortably disparage.

Hard pass.
My thread on Omarosa was succinct. I am no supporter. But let's not forget that Sean Spicer got a job at HARVARD when he left the White House.

We can't dismiss the facts of @OMAROSA's race & gender from the tone with which white pundits are discussing her. (I emphasize white.)

The @OMAROSA story today has several important facets, none of them risible.

This is a woman who was in Trump's inner circle and who had his ear.

Prior to him calling her a "low life" on Saturday, Trump lauded her and her work in various tweets and interview comments.

Trump wants you to believe #Omarosa is a liar, but then there is the tape she played on @MeetThePress.

Which is evidentiary.

The #GOP and #RNC are concerned---they started an #OmarosaUnhinged hashtag and are busy tweeting about her, as are Trump's surrogates.

#Omarosa isn't "unhinged." She's vengeful. Is she a liar? About some things, verifiably. About others, verifiably truthful.

That she was able to go all over Trump's White House recording people is a cause for grave concern.

It speaks to Trump's incompetence as a leader.

The #FakeNewsMedia, especially #FakeNewsCNN, have been reporting according to their sources #JohnKelly would be fired by President Trump more times than we can count only to learn he is staying throughout 2020. Now we see why they are labeled #FakeNews
Everything #FakeNewsCNN reports must be questioned. They don't get their facts straight and when called out will make a tepid correction. They have not reported fair and balanced news in a very long time. #VoteRed2018
Anderson Cooper, Don Lemon, Chris Cuomo, Wolf Blitzer, Jake Tapper, Jim Acosta, Poppy Harlow, Brooke Baldwin, Erin Burnett all report #FakeNews for their audience to eat up and fill comfortable.

Hey--remember when CoS #JohnKelly (the villain in every story involving Trump's inner circle) maintained #RobPorter's security clearance even though he knew Porter was responsible for #domesticviolence against both his former wives?
In case you forgot that story because John Kelly has done so many other terrible things since, Kelly ignored #RobPorter's abuse of his wives and prioritized protecting Porter over his victims theintercept.com/2018/02/07/rob…
#JohnKelly is OBVIOUSLY the architect of today's threat to rescind the security clearances of Brennan, Hayden, Rice and Clapper. (Comey and McCabe already had theirs revoked.) These are not things Trump discerns on his own. He needs direction. Kelly--who hasn't resigned--gave it.

trump would LIKE you to believe that his concentration camps on the border are policy that existed under Obama and Clinton.

GET INFORMED. TRUMP'S EXCUSES ARE DISGUSTING LIES.

Myth-busting thread ahead:
The catastrophe unfolding at the border is ENTIRELY on TRUMP's shoulders. He has demonized the poor, the uneducated, the desperate, the foreign, the brown, the black. To the point that his supporters are able to defend crimes of humanity against them and say THEY DESERVE IT.
If you can defend this calamity, you have truly lost your ability to reason and your soul. And are that much closer to being like the "good Germans" who looked the other way while their government committed atrocities against "other" people.

The Wife's fam are immigrants.
So tonight we were talking about #JohnKelly.

I am imagining #MothersDay with the fam all together & The Wife's mother, whose parents were a carpenter & a lacemaker who didn't speak English. The Wife's mother is a painter & retired art professor.
#JohnKelly's xenophobia & racism are over-the-top, even for someone in the Trump administration. How can someone who lost a child be so cavalier about children being separated from their mothers? How can he claim immigrants can't assimilate? How do Trump's people talk like this?
#HeyJohnKelly
My father's mother was from Sweden, never went to school past 5th grade. Her husband, my grandfather, never went past 8th. She took in washing, he was a photographer. They were both functionally illiterate.

My father won a scholarship to an Ivy League college.

The @GOP and any remaining tRumpsters out there better start paying attention to the FACTS and the WARNINGS, & opinions from HIGHLY respected, life long PUBLIC SERVANTS who truly care ONLY about protecting OUR COUNTRY. They DGAF about politics...

/1
...well, until politicians start preventing them from performing their DUTIES. These CAREER PROFESSIONALS do not politics affect their work. They follow the facts, they verify tips on illegal activity (#SteeleDossier) or clarify FALSE accusations (illegally wire tapped).

/2
Investigations are SUPPOSED to have a NATURAL conclusion. That means tips, leads, facts, ENTIRE investigation has exhausted all relative leads & come to a VERIFIABLE conclusion. The same way we expect ALL law enforcement to do when we're accused of crimes, or crimes against us

#JohnKelly Committed A #Crime By Letting
#RobPorter Handle #Classified Info Without
#SecurityClearance.

"We know that Rob Porter’s Interim Security Clearance expired on January 15, 2018. We also know that as the WH Secretary he was handling the..
most sensitive classified information that our intelligence community collects. John Kelly knew that Porter was not only a serial domestic abuser but also lacked the proper Security Clearance to be handling the information that he was seeing.

"Kelly and the rest of the White ...
House ignored #FBI’s concerns & possibly committed a crime by giving an unauthorized person access to classified intelligence for weeks."
"The General who was brought into the corrupt and chaotic Trump White House to restore order is just another player in the #TrumpCrimeWave."
